June 12, 2017 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Online Auction

Online auction sites can be the premiere place for damaged truck. Actually, the main threats come from the selection, affordability and streamlined services in online auctions such as Auto Bid Master.  Online auctions carry selections from across large areas, but on the same site, making it easier than flipping through dozens of regional ads. The extensive inventory of trucks at Auto Bid Master gives options for buyers who have distinct purposes in mind.


People typically look for damaged trucks for two reasons. In the first reason: a rebuilder wants to build a truck of his dreams. The person wants to take a truck from the past, a classic from memories or a recent model truck and convert it into the truck they see in their dreams. They can have many parts that are in outstanding condition and can provide upgrades or replacement parts at bargain prices. The latter option eliminates the hassle of digging through salvage yards to find rare, replacement parts.


Online auctions offer damaged trucks at a fraction of the price compared to buying new or even used from a local dealer. A skilled craftsman or someone with passion can repair the truck and be rewarded with having a vehicle to drive.


Buyers need to take a few steps before and during the process of buying a damaged truck. The first step is to look at a damaged truck inside and outside. If you’re an amateur or just getting into the repair business, bring along a trusted mechanic. A trusted mechanic can tell the true extent of the repairs, the potential costs-both time and labor- and ultimately whether the investment is worth it.


When learning about the truck, the best place to start is the history. Get the accident reports and vehicle history to see what happened and how much damage was done and if any repairs were made. Sometimes damaged vehicles have repairs made before the owner throws in the towel. Those repairs might make the vehicle appear better than it is or conceal important details.


These are important steps before making a bid. Bidding and buying a damaged truck only to find out later more work needs to be done or the truck isn’t as advertised can frustrated and quickly overwhelm amateurs and professional rebuilders alike.


With all decided, make your bid according to your budget. The budget should factor in any transportation, parts and other costs associated with a damaged truck. When all is said and done, buying at an online auction will be one of the best and most rewarding decisions you’ve made. The truck you’ve always wanted never looked better than in your driveway.
